About Corner Store
Corner Store Coffee & Doughnuts is a coffee shop franchise attracting a millennials customer case on the United Kingdom high street. With its fresh doughnuts and cups of coffee, as well as fresh fruit juices, plus quality food such as paninis and sandwiches, there is something for everyone in this thriving market, where customer demands are constantly changing.
The company’s doughnuts are made fresh on-site every day. Each Corner Store offers 14 daily handmade doughnuts, 10 fresh daily paninis and 15 different teas and coffees.
To encourage customer loyalty, Corner Store has a loyalty card scheme. For each £1 spent, one point is added to a customer’s loyalty card, which is fully transferable across branches, meaning customers can redeem their points in any Corner Store outlet.
‘Gold Customer’ status is offered to customers who have built up a set number of points.
Through its fully transactional website, Corner Store sells quality products such as branded merchandise, awesome coffee and tea kits and a range of menu items that are made ‘fresh for collection’ within the hour.
This online activity, combined with the company’s growing social media presence, significantly boosts brand awareness for the chain and franchise network, thus attracting more potential customers.
How does the franchise model work?
Investors in this franchise business are shown how to replicate the success of the Corner Store concept through a comprehensive package of initial and ongoing training and support, key menu ingredients and production templates.
They also benefit from the company’s established brand name and loyal customer base.
Initially, unit managers are to be recruited from other successful high street leisure businesses. Ideally, managers and staff will be encouraged to grow and develop within the business generating management training programmes and internal promotion. It is expected that by site three, all managers will be developed from within existing unit operations.
What type of franchisee is Corner Store looking to recruit?
You don’t need to have previous experience in a coffee franchise, have been a coffee shop owner, run a successful coffee shop or possess a background in food to become a Corner Store franchise business owner, as the company will teach you everything you need to know about running a local shop and building a profitable business.
However, prospective partners must be hard-working, motivated self-starters with a positive attitude who are capable of following a tried and tested system and delivering first class customer service.
What training and support is provided?
Uniquely, Corner Store will individualise your initial training, as the company doesn’t believe one size fits all store owners. The hands-on training provided by the company includes instruction in operations, marketing strategy and everything you need to operate a successful franchise.
It develops franchisees in at least eight different areas:
1. Food hygiene.
2. First aid.
3. Disability awareness.
4. Food allergen awareness.
5. Coffee art.
6. Customer focus.
Support is provided to its network of stores by the company’s operations team and key suppliers, who all have valuable experience in the sector.
One of Corner Store’s operational partners is Cheshire College South & West.
This educational establishment is an industry leading developer of people, which holds several industry accreditations, including AA College Restaurant of the Year (2017 and 2019), gold accreditation and centre of excellence for food and beverage services from People 1st and a highly commended college rosette from the AA hotel services.
Cheshire College South & West is Corner Store’s lead partner in product development, people, apprenticeships and mass production, using existing facilities in Crewe and Ellesmere Port.
How much does it cost to invest in a Corner Store franchise business opportunity?
The minimum initial investment startup cost is £50,000 (total investment is £100,000).
With Corner Store, you can invest in a single outlet and progress to a multi-unit franchise ownership operation or even take control of a whole area comprising several franchise businesses and mall store outlets.
Franchises shouldn’t cost the earth. They should be a way for store owners to grow and build a successful business while minimising production costs.
With low initial overheads and a fully financed option model, Corner Store is there to support you as you build your business in Britain.
What locations or territories does Corner Store have franchises for sale?
The company has businesses for sale across the UK (with some sites pending awaiting franchisees).
Corner Store says it has good relationships with landlords and agents throughout the UK, meaning it’s able to secure key real estate at competitive prices if you want to buy a coffee shop franchise that has good retail sales.
The company has already established prime site locations, ranging from 2,000 square feet to 3,100 square feet, in Chester, Rochdale, Trafford, Warrington, Southport and the Cheshire Oaks outlet mall.
What are the franchise terms of agreement and renewal?
